I wrote about this story in my book The Happiness Project; its lesson is just as true for adults as for children. I’ve never forgotten about that little boy saying sadly, “I can’t love lots of cars.” If you like this story, and would like to hear more wisdom from the teacher who told it to me, you can check out the excellent book that she wrote with her colleague: Practical Wisdom for Parents: Raising Self-Confident Children in the Preschool Years, by Nancy Schulman and Ellen Birnbaum.
